Hi folks,

Hopeing someone can help. I have a Kingsley stereophonic Radiogram that’s missing one if it’s 6 knobs. If possible, I’d like to find a replacement for missing one rather than changing all 6. If you can help, please get in touch with me directly.

Thanks Scott

HMV Knob

But which model?

A photo of the existing knobs would be useful.

I'm sure I've seen a match for that knob in Altronics catalogue.

Originals might have been from Sato.

I haven't seen a knob like that for a long time. Also, knobs these days tend to be of the spline type.

Yes, I’m hoping someone here will have a spare off something they have ratted previously.
Cheers

I've got some. I will PM you.

They are the same the later Kingsley RKR knobs. Earlier Kingsleys used wider shorter Sato knobs. Sato knobs are hard to find outside Japan now the company's pulled out of the international market, but there are Taiwanese copies of some of their models, including the K-2670 which was used on a number of EA projects.

Happy to help. Do you know the model code for your radiogram? I'm guessing that it's a KRG. The info might be on a label under the turntable mat, or a label attached to the chassis.
